      Ann [UNDERWOOD] was mentioned in the will of Col. John Upton as being married to James Williamson in 1651. The said James Williamson was living in Isle of Wight County 20 Sept. 1649 when a power of attorney was made by William Lea of Middlesex (England) to William Sheard of London to collect a debt of 3200 pounds of tobacco from James Williamson Gent. of Red Poynt, Isle of Wight County Virginia for the use of Elizabeth Fadloe widow. It was entered of record at August Court 1652. (Records 1652-57, page 5, Lancaster Co.)

      22 May 1650, Sir William Berkeley, Governor, granted to James Williamson 1800 acres of land lying in Rappahannock River near the mouth of Millock Creek at the line of William Underwood, on the mayne river side above the land of Anthony Jackman, For the transportation of thirty six persons into the colony. (Land Patents II, page 212).

      The lands of Mr. Williamson adjoined that which was allotted to the Rappahannock Indians and on the north side of Totuskey Creek. This was cited in a patent to John Sherlock 15 Nov. 1653. (Records 1656-64, page 140, Rappahannock County).

      He did not leave a will but the inventory of his estate was returned 16 December 1656. William Underwood was his executor. (Records 1656-64, page 79, Rappahannock).

      He seems to have been a friend of John Hammond of Isle of Wight who removed to Maryland where he was a very prominent figure and was the author of the tract "Leah and Rachel" which he dedicated to James Williamson.

      He and his wife Ann (Underwood) had issue[:] two daughters Margaret and Mary who, on 11 March 1662, had a grant of land?882 acres?lying in Rappahannock County between the head branches of Pepetick Creek and Mr. Popes Creek nigh the Rappahannock path to the land of Sylvester Thacher and Thomas Whitlock, formerly granted to William Underwood Gent. 10 Sept. 1658 and by him given by his last will unto the said Margaret and Mary Williamson. (Land Patents No. IV, page 597).
